From the article:
"The Colts retained Pitcock's NFL rights and he worked out for them on a couple of occasions until they waived him prior to last summer's training camp. They considered allowing him to compete for a roster spot, he said, "but they thought maybe I would be a distraction." "
I ASSUMED we just let the guy go and THEN he decided to come back, as if he just didn't want to play for the Colts but it looks like they were much more hands on than any of us realized. I, for one, would be happy to let him jump start his career again right here in Indy, especially if he's up to 329-lbs and is still as athletic as he used to be (ahem, NT anyone?).
